  • Samsonov allowed four goals on 31 shots in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers in Game 6. Samsonov let a couple of one-goal leads slip away, and it took a late T.J. Oshie tally to get the contest to overtime. There, Carter Verhaeghe tallied 2:46 into the extra session, ending the Capitals' season. Samsonov went 1-3 in the playoffs, allowing 13 goals on 148 shots across five appearances. He's set for restricted free agency after going 23-12-5 with a 3.02 GAA and an .896 save percentage in 44 regular-season games -- those ratios being the worst marks in his three-year career.

  • Samsonov will tend the twine at home in Friday's Game 6 against Florida, Andrew Gillis of NBC Sports Washington reports. Samsonov will backstop the Capitals as they face elimination for the first time this series. The 25-year-old sports a 2.68 GAA and a .932 save percentage behind a 1-2-0 record during this postseason and will be highly motivated for a good performance against the Presidents' Trophy-winning Panthers.

  • Samsonov allowed five goals on 38 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers in Game 5. For the second straight game, Samsonov wasn't able to protect a lead for the Capitals. This time, he allowed five unanswered goals as the Panthers pulled off a big comeback to go ahead 3-2 in the series. Samsonov has done fairly well with nine goals allowed across his four appearances, but the back-to-back losses leaves some question as to which goalie head coach Peter Laviolette turns to for Friday's must-win Game 6.

  • Samsonov will guard the road goal during Wednesday's Game 5 versus the Panthers, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports. Samsonov was pretty solid in Monday's Game 4 against Florida, stopping 29 of 32 shots, but he still came away with his first loss of the playoffs due to insufficient goal support from his teammates. The 25-year-old backstop will try to bounce back and secure his second win of the postseason in a rematch with the same Panthers squad Wednesday.

  • Samsonov allowed three goals on 32 shots in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Panthers. Samsonov was sharp Monday, forcing overtime despite the Panthers outshooting the Capitals 32-16. The 26-year-old netminder has a .949 save percentage (four goals on 79 shots) since relieving Vitek Vanecek in Game 2. Samsonov likely earned another start in Game 5 with the series tied 2-2. Still, Washington's goaltending situation is worth monitoring before Wednesday's contest.
